"Ryszard Wojtkowski, Piotr Zawilski, Access to Archival Resources via the Internet — the
Experience of Polish Archives. The dynamic development of information technology has led to a new
perception of the tasks and functions of archives and archivists in an information society. It is becoming
increasingly clear that users expect open access to archival resources and being able to use them
via the Internet.
In Poland, those needs are addressed by the Social Capital Development Strategy, which seeks
to support the process of digitization, which will enable wide access to the collections of archives,
museums, and libraries via the Internet.
One of the strategic goals of the “Strategy of the State Archives for 2010–2020”, announced by
the General Director of the State Archives, is satisfying the information needs of the public. The realization
of this goal is made possible by initiatives such as the “Kultura+” Multiannual Programme,
whose budget for the years 2011–2015 is PLN 516 million. Funds obtained under the programme are
allocated to the development of digitization workshops as well as the digitization of records by third
Digitization is also one of the priorities of state archives. When allocating additional funds to that
purpose, the General Director of State Archives indicated that at least 50 percent of the material copied
should be vital records. This is important in view of the fact that those documents account for almost
half of the materials accessed in research rooms."
